Tony Hawk (born May 12, 1968) is an American professional skateboarder. He is credited with the invention of many aerial skateboard tricks including the Stalefish, Madonna, and McHawk, and over 80 others, but is most famous for being the first recorded skater to land the 900, which consists of two-and-a-half rotations (900°) in the air before landing back on the pipe) during the televised June 27, 1999 X Games, for which he received an enormous amount of attention. He was also the second skateboarder to land a McTwist, a trick named after a Mike McGill of the Bones Brigade, a skate team that Tony Hawk was originally a member of. It marked the next level of his rise to fame, solidifying his status as a household name. He retired from competitive skateboarding afterwards, but continues to skate and perform.

Biography

Tony Hawk is the son of Nancy (homemaker / college professor) and Frank Hawk (retired U.S. Navy officer/small appliance salesman). Tony Hawk is the youngest of 4 children; he has one brother, Steve, and two sisters, Lenore and Patricia.[1]


In his autobiography, Tony Hawk described himself as a "cool kid" -- frustrated, unfocused, and prone to flying off into rages. Tony Hawk was nine years old when his brother changed his life by giving him a blue fiberglass banana board.[2] His father built a skating ramp in the backyard, in hopes that skateboarding would be an outlet for young Tony's energy.

While there, Druke the Fijian Chief of Tavarua, requested Hawk give a private skate demo where two onlookers held a piece of plywood as a makeshift wall to wall ride on a tennis court wall.[9][10]Tony and Lhotse are currently expecting their first child together.[11] Rancid is a punk band, formed in 1991 in Albany, California, by Matt Freeman and Tim Armstrong. ...
